Nubia to launch Red Magic gaming phone on April 19

Yordan, 17 April 2018

Razer started a new trend of gaming phones that Xiaomi followed with the Black Shark. The next company that will add a device to the new segment will be nubia with the Red Magic (another translation could be Red Devil). Today the ZTE subsidiary announced the date of the phone’s arrival - April 19 in Beijing.

In a short video, posted on Chinese social media, we see a bit of the phone. The images do not reveal much - we see an edgy design and all hardware keys sitting on the right side: power button, volume rocker, and from what it looks like - a switch to turn on a special gaming mode.

Sources from China claim the phone will have a Snapdragon 845 chipset. It will also have four built-in fans and a new air-cooled heat dissipation technology. The back is rumored to be of carbon nanomaterials, but such a solution might skyrocket the price. We’ll learn all the details soon enough - the launch date is not far off in the future.

ZTE only owns 49.9% so therefore is a side company not owner

Nubia wasn’t just a model name from ZTE? I’m confused.
